Parker In Charge 

Masergy Communications, a hybrid networking and cloud communications provider, has a new CEO at the helm. Telecom veteran James Parker said in September that he was joining the company, and in December, he took over for former CEO Chris MacFarland, now executive chairman and CTO for the company.

Parker, who previously served as chief customer officer at Tata Communications, is an IT veteran who is ready to go after more next-gen networking opportunities with the help of Masergy's all-important partner ecosystem, including MSPs, agents and technology partners such as Cisco Systems. He believes that cloud-based communications and SD-WAN will be huge areas for the channel, as will managed security—a "recession-proof" area of technology that businesses will need from their trusted advisers.

Here are excerpts from Parker's recent interview with CRN.
